I put in 6 days' worth of work on my Chatelaine, the Desert Mandala pattern. I'm still working on the first section, which is the center of the design.
I'm stitching this with the called-for threads, DMC and various hand-dyed silks, as well as some Petite Treasure Braid. It's stitched on a 28-count Jobelan from Picture This Plus in the colorway Calypso. I added in the trunk of the tree, another one of the sunset colors and extended the lightning bolt down. I also finished the interior (magenta-colored) border, and the 1 over 1 coyote howling at the moon. I'm really enjoying this project and it'll be coming back out for another 6 days over the first week of September.
Next up, I finished the second in a pair of holiday ornaments from Hands On Design. This is Serenity and it's a companion piece to Solitude, which was featured as a finish a couple of posts ago.
Finally, I'm working on Star Weaver, which is the storykeep sized piece with artwork by Tom Cross and charted by Heaven and Earth Designs.
I've got a couple more days to work on this and I am really trying to get a page finish in! This would then complete page 2 of 3, and I'll have just 1 more page to finish this one up. This is being stitched on 28-count Monaco, 1 over 1 with DMC threads and a wee bit of Petite Treasure Braid. Absolutely loving how this one is coming out!
I decided that I'm going to do the Year of WIPs 2018 being hosted by Melanie at the Soulful Stitching Facebook group. I've got several things that were Maynia starts in 2017 that I'd like to get finished up in the next calendar year and I think that'll help motivate me to do that! More details on that as we get closer to the year's end.
